Day 87

   According to the village people, as I surmised, this water level of the river is same as the level of the spring thaw, which was usually the peak value of this river. The beach beside the village is submerged totally, which normally we could see in there.
   A elderly lady told me that, it was her first experience to see that the water rose to this level in this season, and she was surprised at this very unusual situation. Many people have worried about the climatic changes resulting from the global warming.

   Today also the water level is increasing a inch per day.

87日目

 村人から聞くところ、予想していたようにこの水位は、いつもならそれがピーク値であるはずの、春の雪解けによる水位と同じ高さだそうだ。いつもならばそこにあるはずの、村に面した浜がすっかり水没している。
 村のおばあさんの話によると、この時期にここまで水位が上がったのは生まれて初めての経験で、このとても異常な状況に驚いているという。地球温暖化がもたらす気候変動を、誰もが心配しているようだ。

 今日も引き続き水位は上昇し、一日で2~3センチメートル増えた。
